Did you have diabetes when you were pregnant? Are you 45 or older and concerned about your weight , blood sugar or cholesterol? The Life! Program can help you to learn how to feel better and lower your risk for developing type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.

Life! Starts with an individual session  where you learn about the program and can start straight away by setting health goals.   Life! Groups are interesting and enjoyable and  consist of  four  fortnightly  group sessions across two months and a review session 6 months later. Free* for most people, the Life! course offers you the skills, support and expert advice needed to make lifestyle choices to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Partners are also welcome to attend .

The Life! course is not a lecture. The trained Life! Facilitator, Dietitian and Exercise Physiologist who  deliver the course give you individual attention, help you to set personal goals  and learn about you and your lifestyle.
